Hello Stacked Cups - Ink Smooshing

Hello Stacked Cups - Ink Smooshing

Hi everyone! It is Verity here again from Pretty Little Buttonso good to be back up on the blog again. Today is my regular spot on the Brutus Monroe Blog and I have this lovely bright and cheery hello stacked cups card. I love the bright purple and pink colours in this card and think the stack of teacups is so cute, especially with the heart tie on the spoon. 

Hello Stacked Cups card details:

Stamp the stacked cups in Raven detail Ink and heat set. Once dry Raven detail ink will not bleed with alcohol markers. Colour the images in and fussy cut out, you can use a digital cutting machine if you have one. 

Apply ink to an acetate sheet or plastic backing sheet by smooshing the ink pad onto it. Spray with water and take the plastic sheet to your card panel. Press down and move the ink around with your fingers. If needed dry between layers of different colours. Set to dry and once dry, add a strip of vellum a third up from the bottom. This will help ground sentiment. Foam-mount the card panel on to your card base leaving a 1/8" border all around. 

Die cut a sentiment from Raven Black cardstock, and layer several die cuts on top of one another for dimension using the Brutus Monroe Craft Glue. For a touch of sparkle, I added some holographic embossing powder using the Brutus Monroe embossing ink. Adhere the die cut sentiment to the vellum strip and foam-mount the stacked ups to the right with 3D foam squares. Stamp a small secondary sentiment in Ravel Detail ink beneath the die cut and embellish with sequins/enamel dots or Nuvo drops.

This card is adorable. Thank you for the great details on how you put this card together. I love doing that ink swoosh look as well.
